"I guess I just get bored if I have to do any one thing for very long," he says. With an insatiable curiosity for new music, Nathan Botts has grown from his musical beginnings as a jazz trumpeter into a performer of nearly every style of music. An active freelance trumpeter in New York City, Botts regularly performs with a variety of classical, contemporary, and experimental music ensembles, including the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Manhattan Brass Quintet, Wet Ink Ensemble, and Second Instrumental Unit. Botts has been a featured soloist with the China National Symphony, Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra, and the Utah Premiere Brass, with whom he premiered a new concerto for multi-disciplinary trumpet. As a recording artist, Botts has been featured on jazz, orchestral, soul, house, and bluegrass albums, in addition to film scores, and numerous jingles for network television and radio. He is a former member of the Spoleto Festival Orchestra and the National Repertory Orchestra, he has toured internationally as principal trumpet with the China National Symphony, and is a current member of the Verbier Festival Orchestra. Botts has studied contemporary music under the direction of Pierre Boulez at the Lucerne Festival Academy, and with David Robertson at the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall. He has also studied Jazz at the Manhattan School of Music. He is a graduate of Brigham Young University and the Juilliard School.
